The St. Martin Parish Government has started a storm debris removal program in the aftermath of Barry.

According to officials, a monitoring team has already begun an assessment of the debris generated by the recent storm.

"All roads, drainage laterals, and other critical infrastructure are being cleared of debris," a Facebook post states.

St. Martin Parish Government asks that all residents place the yard waste generated by the storm at the edge of their property. Yard waste is defined as logs, plants, tree branches, and similar vegetation matter.

The following information was provided on how to help facilitate debris pickup:

▪ It will be at least 10-14 days before residential yard debris will be collected so that individuals are afforded ample opportunity to collect their yard waste.

▪ All yard waste (logs, plants, and tree branches) must be segregated from all other waste such as household waste, construction debris, and white goods.

▪ Make sure all debris is placed on the edge of your property so that it does not encroach upon any street or road or drainage laterals.
